Texas New Community Alliance – New Danville receives $7,000 donation from WCF.
Willis, TX – Woodforest Charitable Foundation recently donated $7,000 to Texas New Community Alliance – New Danville in support of their program that offers a community for mentally challenged adults. Founder and CEO, Kathy Sanders, has over 30 years’ experience in planning and providing direct services to individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Her son, Jimmy, is a high functioning, young adult that has a strong desire to live independently but still requires some assistance. It was through Jimmy’s desire that the idea of a community where intellectually and/or developmentally disabled men and women can live, learn, work and be with friends, both disabled and non-disabled, while providing a safe and caring environment encouraging independence and growth was born. By developing a not-for-profit 501C(3) charitable organization and collaborating with like-thinking individuals and groups, this one-of-a-kind community became a reality. New Danville is a master-planned community with a mission to provide an integrated community for adults with mild cognitive and/or developmental disabilities. It is designed to provide a solid foundation for those who seek to live as independently as possible among their peers, while enabling these adults to live, learn, work and grow emotionally, socially and spiritually in a safe, protective environment. The Community provides a variety of housing at affordable rental rates with neighborhoods that consist of a mixture of 4-bedroom homes and 1 or 2-bedroom duplexes. Separate housing can be created through private donations for the construction of non-government assisted housing. The New Danville Community is the only integrated community concept of its kind offering an affordable, holistic approach to services through adult educational training programs, job opportunities, affordable housing with support staff, social and recreational activities, and transportation. “Because of donors like Woodforest Charitable Foundation, the lives of these special-needs adults as well as their family members have improved in more ways than you may realize. Thank you for your generous and caring support of New Danville,” said Kathy Sanders, Founder/CEO of New Danville.
